The LSU Tigers won on the road in SEC action on Thursday night, defeating the Vanderbilt Commodores, 57-51, in Nashville, Tennessee.

The win snaps a seven-game road losing streak for LSU, who hadn’t won away from Baton Rouge since January 11, when they went to Columbia, South Carolina and knocked off the South Carolina Gamecocks, 71-68.

Vanderbilt led, 28-12, at the 3:40 mark of the first half, and held a 32-24 halftime advantage, before LSU out-scored the Commodores, 33-19 in the second half, to leave with the six-point victory.

The Tigers out-shot the Commodores from the field, 33%-31%, while also finishing with a 42-40 rebound advantage.

Johnny O’Bryant led the way for LSU, with 25 points and 10 rebounds, while Andre Stringer scored 11 off the bench.

In a losing cause for Vanderbilt, Rod Odom collected 15 points.

With the victory, LSU improved to 18-11, overall, and 9-8 in SEC play, while Vanderbilt fell to 15-14, overall, and 7-10 in league play.

The Tigers return to action on Saturday, when they host Georgia in their regular season finale.
